Oh wow, my sinuses are killing me. Oddly, when I am on stage I don’t feel it although I just screwed up a line and I think the audience knows I’m sick., Tovah Feldshuh is out there tonight. So are Eva and Bob Shaye. They’ll come back to say hi. I wish I could go to dinner with them but even if I wasn’t sick, I don’t go out the night before we have a matinee. I wish this was a better night for them to see. I like knowing who’s out there. It gives me added energy.
I am writing this during a break in act two. It’s better than just sitting and feeling the pain. Don’t know what to do about tomorrow when we have 2 performances. The docs took me off antibiotics today and put me on a steroid nasal spray…not that you need to know all this, but anyway.
Here’s something funny about my dog Tulea: She knows the difference between the applause at intermission and the applause at the end. She doesn’t get as excited after intermission, but at the end, she’s all wagging and shivering and waiting for me to come back to the dressing room when I scoop her up. Ah dogs! What consolation!!
See you next time.
